President Duda expresses his gratitude to Worldwide Polonia

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Compatriots!

Today we celebrate: “Day of Polonia and Poles Abroad” which was established in 2002. We honor and recognize the contributions of Polonia and Poles Abroad during Poland’s quest to regain its independence. We honor and recognize Polonia and Poles Abroad’s achievements, attachments to Polish culture, and assistance to our Homeland in her most difficult moments.

As the President of Poland I accompany you in this joyful celebration. I extend my heartfelt thanks to you, my compatriots living abroad for your commitment to nurturing patriotism, and preserving the memory of our Polish history, culture and traditions. Thank you for educating Polish youth in the spirit of Christian and European values, and ensuring that the beauty of our Polish Homeland is embraced in their hearts.

On this Day of Polonia and Poles Abroad occasion I wish you my dear countrymen that our common ties become ever stronger and that our love for Poland is passed on to future generations.

I wish you all good luck, health and happiness!

Andrzej Duda
President of Poland
